Hodera releases new music video for their alt-country jam, “Waiting”
New Jersey four-piece Hodera have just released a music video for “Waiting,” the opening song from their latest album, Dear Friend. We reviewed the full album not too long ago, and the tl;dr of it is this: it’s a fantastic alt-Americana album with dashes of emo and punk influence that we highly recommend.
“Waiting” is a full-bodied song that kicks off Dear Friend and introduces the album’s core themes about reconciling with the past and pushing forward. There’s always been an alt-country folksiness to Hodera’s songwriting, but it feels even stronger here with reflective lines like, “Pictures, they’re just ghosts / ‘cause I steal them from death now / and I hang them on the walls to haunt the house” and songs directly addressing past friends and lovers.
